For the second time in a nine-month span, Suge Knight got his face punched in - and the alleged ass-beater du jour claims to be Akon's business manager.
According to TMZ, it all went down in a private party at the W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona - where Suge was attending a party for NBA All-Star weekend.
Police officials say they were called to the scene by hotel security who warned about a brewing fight between two groups in the VIP area of the hotel.
When cops arrived, they saw a man punch the victim - Suge Knight - "two times in the head." It was a scene familiar to Knight after his previous beatdown.
Officers had to break out the tasers to "quell the fight."

The suspect, Robert Carnes Jr., was charged with one count of felony aggravated assault - they ruled it a felony "due to the severity of the victim's injuries."
According to the Scottsdale PD, upon his arrest and booking, "Carnes reported to officers that he is employed as the business manager for singer "Akon."
"Okay" then. Suge Knight - whose real name is Marion, which may explain a great many things - was taken to a local hospital and treated for facial injuries.
Akon was the host of the party at the W last night - a 944 Magazine All-Star Weekend wrap-up bash. The incident happened after the conclusion of the party.
